Chewable coffee and the Apple Watch: Getting started with basic biohacking
March 29, 2016 - Uncategorized
The breakout star of South by Southwest Interactive wasn’t a social app or a piece of hardware. It was chewable coffee. Little red and yellow packages of caffeine-packed Go Cubes were all over downtown Austin.
But these weird little latte-flavored gummies aren’t just a novelty snack, or even an easy way to mainline caffeine without having to pee every five minutes. Chewing Go Cubes is the first step on the road to biohacking, or quantifying your body and your brain to achieve maximum productivity.
Most people wouldn’t consider wearing a fitness band that tells you when you’ve walked 10,000 steps in a day, using an app to track your workouts, or logging your food intake forms of biohacking, which, to be honest, sounds like a weird, extreme practice for people who believe we’re closer than ever to The Singularity. But if you quantify your body’s inputs, like food, and its outputs, like exercise, then you’re well on your way to being a biohacker. At least that’s what Nootrobox cofounder Geoff Woo told me.
